Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. COPD includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Symptoms of COPD include a cough that won’t go away, often coughing up mucus and frequent shortness of breath. COPD is the third leading cause of death in the US. Smoking is estimated to cause up to 90 percent of COPD cases.
